A Life's Work (English Edition) Format Kindle
'An incitement to riot . . . It's an extraordinary piece of work and the writing is utterly beautiful . . . I laughed out loud, often, in painful recognition.' Esther Freud
'As compulsive as a thriller.' Kate Kellaway, Observer
'Thank god for Rachel Cusk's beautifully written and compelling memoir.' Claire Messud, Guardian Books of the Year
'Cusk is not afraid to address frankly the grief for freedom lost, the despair, pain, boredom and guilt - all in the context of the mother's unspeakable love for the baby . . . Perhaps the most beautifully written and moving book on the subject.' Stephanie Merritt, Observer
A Life's Work is Rachel Cusk's funny, moving, brutally honest account of her early experiences of motherhood. An education in babies, books, breast-feeding, toddler groups, broken nights, bad advice and never being alone, it is a landmark work, which has provoked acclaim and outrage in equal measure.

I'm sorry to say that any mother who objects to this book is either in denial or being very insensitive to someones else's experience. We are all different, we all led different lives before we became mothers, we all have different levels of support systems and expectations. Her experience is a valid one because it is hers. Simple. If you had a better experience, good for you, perhaps you had a better support network around you, an easier baby or a more shallow perspective.
I related to much of what she said, the aching to be alone, only to feel an equivalent aching of dependancy and missing them once its finally granted. The loss of identity, of place in the world, the isolation, the agony of sleep deprivation, of anxiety.
It's clear to me she had very little help and support in the ways that women, new mothers, need in this time. Older women, women who've done it before, family, love, guidance, it's all absent here. A woman, a grandmother, to cook her a beautiful meal and lovingly hold her baby in her arms so that she can eat it in peace and then go and have a nap. Not too much to ask in so many cultures around the world and fundamental for mother and baby....
All too familiar a problem in our modern times, I only wish that was addressed more, its seems to have been forgotten, "it takes a village to raise a child," we are not supposed to do it on our own like this.
